My sister died when I was six and it set my mind away from typical kid stuff. When I started writing music as a teenager, I was going through a lot of those big questions: “Who are we, what is our place in the universe, what is the point and where do we go when we die?” I lost my brother three years ago and the pandemic has meant we’re all facing our mortality so there’s that deeper need for connection through music and art.
Everything feels connected for me at the moment. I’ve never felt moved by politics like I have in the last couple of years. Every day waking up to a new ridiculous horror, even something as stupid as our former president’s tweets. We’re being made to feel like we have no power or voice, but I’m being pushed to think, yes, we do if we stand together. That’s what our song Use My Voice is about. Truth has to rule. We can break out of the old moulds and invent a better future if we admit the things that are broken in ourselves and in society. Evanescence’s album
